15+ Snakes Just Sssstylin' In Hats

Ryan Ford 2 Dec 2019

Let's face it, snakes have a bit of a PR problem in the pet world. It's not even undue. Depending on where in the world you live, there's a legit possibility that a snake bite could leave you writhing in pain, if not dead. In those areas, it's not wrong to respect their space.

But there are also many, many completely harmless snakes out there. They're basically just wiggly bits of colorful string. The thing that just might help them make a breakthrough with the more squeamish crowd? Accessories.

1. Just look at this dapper lad.

Yes, that's actually a pasty, but I think it's time to acknowledge that they're better served on snakes' heads than in old timey bachelor parties.
